Another tool for creating self grading quizzes has come to my attention. Flubaroo was the first I found and it works great. Another that works equally as well for me is Super Quiz. Like Flubaroo this add-on uses Google Forms to build your quiz. Its a great tool. Grades your quizzes and sends the results directly to the students. There area several videos on YouTube that you may find useful.
Here are two videos you can use to help you utilize Superquiz. I hope you find them useful.
I like to find easy ways to do things and I think I’ve found one here. Using Google forms you can make self-grading tests and quizzes that will not only grade the quiz or test but it will send the student an email with their score.
I made a short video to show some of the basics necessary to do this. One of those necessities is an add on to Google Sheets called Flubaroo. This is the add on that will grade the work and send the students their scores.
So, Here is a video to give you the idea of what you can do. It’s not my best video but you will get the idea.
Let me know what you think.
Flippity.net allows teachers and students alike to use Google spreadsheets to create quizzes, flashcards and Jeopardy style games. As long as you understand the basics of spreadsheets, this is a very simple process.
The first thing you need to do is have a Google account with Google drive. Next, go to the flippity website so you can copy and rename the template for quizzes, flashcards or jeopardy games. Once you have this completed, open the template fill in the data, spell check everything, publish, and then follow the directions for copying the link so you can either send or embed your flashcards quizzes and games.
What I like about this is the fact that the students can create their own flashcards. They can include pictures, videos, words, and have the flashcards with them wherever their smart phones, tablets or computers are available. From my flashcards. I was able to create quizzes which included the still pictures I had put on the flashcards.
None of this took very long at all to do. If you can follow the examples in the template you won’t have any problems at all.
Below is a screen capture of their website. It is easy to use and the best part is it’s free.
You know, I think I’m addicted to apps. I have so many in my phone and my iPad that I can’t even take a picture of anything anymore. If there’s a 12 step program for beating this addiction, I probably better find it. In the meantime I found another app I really like. It’s called Adobe “Voice”, it is only for the iPad and it allows you to make short videos using icons, pictures, music, and your own voice to tell a story. You can send the story to others. You can embed it in your webpage. There are lots of things that you can do with this and the best part is it’s free. Your students can use it to create stories and projects and then they can share those with you as a teacher with their friends and their relatives and fellow students.
Some people believe their problems with this because you can’t load the videos onto YouTube and you can’t save them on your Google drive. But as I said, you can send a link to anybody you want to you can publish them to the public and you can also get a link so you can embed them into your webpage. So there are lots of ways to publish it other than utilizing YouTube and Google drive.
So if you’re addicted to new apps that can help you do your job better as a teacher in your students provide you with more creative ways to tell their stories and turn in their homework, then this is a good choice for you. As I said it only works on the iPad right now. I wish it worked for some of the android tablets. Maybe someday they will get it to that point. But right now if you got an iPad, download it is called voice, it’s free, it’s a lot of fun. And it is one of the easiest storytelling programs I’ve seen in a long time.
